I created a custom column named pages and used the plugin to generate page counts for a few books. When I used the custom column (#pages) in the device config, the page count in the column was used. If a book didn't have a page count, Calibre generated its own page count when sending to the device--just as if the plugin wasn't installed.

I haven't done any tests with many books and am still not sure where things are going wrong for you. Try not restarting the kindle after removing/sending the books. I doubt that is causing problems but it would interrupt updates to the database which should continue after the restart... Not sure exactly.
Well, again, thank you so much for investing your time and patience with me!

Okay, I'll tinker with both things today and see what happens. *fingers crossed*

Just a note that I did try doing a smaller amount of books at a time and it didn't help.
